Good all round white Cone 6 stoneware clay fires to a nice white that responds well to most glazes. Speckles show through matte glazes and add depth to the glaze surface.
It is an amazing clay and I think I'll be ordering alot more from tuckers.
I purchased it and used it with children. It's pretty easy to work with beginners group like us. It's white when dry, and didn't stain the surface we worked on.
